CAISSONS ROLLING THROUGH TIME
(And they’re rolling right down to us.)
How far could you throw a 1,200- pound solid iron ball? (I have trouble with a 12-pound bowling ball!) If you had a cannon, how far could you make it go?
How big would your cannon have to be if you wanted to make that 1,200-pound cannonball travel one MILE? (Try just walking a mile!)
Well, the Islamic Turks had it all figured out. And they needed 60 oxen and 700 men just to pull the huge cannon into place! Then, after they fired it, it took seven hours to reload!
But with the use of this cannon, the gigantic 1,000 year-old super-walled city of Constantinople . . . fell. It was the end of Christendom in the East. It was a huge and unexpected shock to the Western world. 1453 A.D.
What was happening in Western Christendom that they wouldn’t come to the aid of Constantinople?
Read today’s headlines: King would not align with kings, leaders quarreled with other leaders, nobody had “extra” money that they would spend on defense, the emphasis was on “arts and entertainment,” quality of life, and the new-found emphasis on humanism in service of Man; and – as always – there was a traitor from the West; “Urban” I think his name was. He was the one who taught the Turks how to build this giant cannon, and he stayed with them, “training” them until they were proficient — against Constantinople, and ultimately the West.
“And the caissons go rolling along….” I’m still surprised at how moved I was during the Fourth of July celebration along the Hudson River last summer. So big a crowd, all proud to be celebrating America; and so many in the crowd sang along with all the songs representing our Armed Forces…. And including the Army’s: “Over hill, over dale, we have hit the dusty trail, And those — ” I was a little mystified when I didn’t hear them sing about “those caissons.” It was: “And those soldiers keep marching along.”
NOT the caissons rolling!? I wondered why. It troubled me. Was this a subtle attack from the Modernists? Caissons, after all, are those wagons which carry along ammunition for the artillery used by the soldiers. Is it not “nice” to refer to ammunition anymore? Or did someone think that “people” wouldn’t know what a caisson is? I didn’t know – not when I first heard the song. I grew up with “The Halls of Montezuma” in my house, so I didn’t pay attention to those “caissons” until I was older. But my Dad knew what a caisson is. My teachers knew. It was in our textbooks. Our dictionaries. We children were not expected to be intellectually “soft.” And stupid.
Don’t change the word “caisson”! Because we have to know that they are STILL “rolling along. ”
The “Turks” still have “cannons” aimed at us, now more than ever, only they aren’t shooting solid balls, they’re shooting case balls, also known as shells, which means they’re hollowed out and filled with explosives. And today we call them missiles; bombs on missiles. Iran’s nuclear weapon program got our green light.
And we learned this past week that the Barack Hussein person in the U.S. has facilitated the paying out of 33.6 BILLION dollars to Iran. * Gold bullion and cash money. Iranians are not “Turks,” but taking aim at us just the same.
Military vehicles on wheels and accompanying armament? In 2015 we paid out to Iraq about $600,000,000 for humvees and heavy-duty items of warfare. And then —
— then! — we “lost” 2,300 humvees. Our enemies “took them” when Mosul was conquered. Now there are 2,300 humvees not protecting our soldiers, but in enemy hands, being used right now, against our soldiers, in all kinds of inventive ways. (Fill them with explosives and drive them into people. . . .)
So, those “caissons” are still rolling along, pointed at us, paid for by us, and there is still a faction of westerners who are aiding and abetting the enemy, just as in 1453.
Constantinople was defenseless against this huge cannon and the onslaught of very determined Muslims.
We look for our spiritual, moral, and physical defenses.
By the way, is there a meaning in the number “33” ? (For those who recognize that number.) George Soros has recently public stated what we all knew, that the Global Governance of us (tyranny) cannot take full effect until the two big obstacles are brought down: the idea of national sovereignty (epitomized best in the Constitution of the United States); and the neutralization (neutering) of the Catholic Church.
Soros represents the Enemy. Soros is an arm of the Enemy. Keep your eye on his ubiquitous influence in the United States.
Oh, okay. If you want. Maybe another source about those humvees.
It’s possible the entertainment-news media in the U.S. in not talking about this.
